He mentions the lack of mental fortitude with some, in particular, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson and Lee Westwood affect their odds. Also Rory McIlroy is stated about his 8 stroke collapse in 2011 which may be an exception, but The Masters does have it way to play tricks on the mind.
The Head Trader was asked if the tournament current favourite, Jason Day, was the best bet to win it. The Head Trader said “the last 6 months – 6 wins from 13 starts – including a clinical performance in the last major, the US PGA, that he can win these events now, and is currently playing better than anyone so is a worthy favourite.”
